Ivo,

Nice car! At least it doesn't look as Daft as my first car: a Ford Escort. Thank God I DON'T have any pictures of that :D But it wasn't as Daft as the Ford Escort Pizza Van of Jamie :D

My first car was a Mitsubishi Cordia.. eek!
You know what ? I bought it from a guy who sold it to me as a 1.8, while it turned out to be a 1.6.. :D
Damn, i was a rookie then..didn't notice it until my insurance papers came ..

It really was ugly
.. Had a big dent and some rust under the rear wheel arch as well.. The only good thing it had was the nice grey velvet seats..
Never drove it much though.. My girlfriend in that time drove a Golf cabrio and later a Pajero 3.0L V6, wich were way cooler :D :cool:

I bought it for about 2300€, spend 1200€ on replacing the gearbox (wich didn't help the sticky gearchanging)and other things, and sold it at last for about 1900€ :rolleyes: you can see that I wasn't into sales back then :D

Oh and Jamie I have promised myself that even though this is my first car I will not be doing anything like that. At the moment it has had the most minute of mods and although replacing the seats would be nice I think I will just get em recovered to keep it looking original.

Unfortunately I have a mate going down the same path as you with his Corsa (SB GSi - the 1.6 one). Matter of fact I helped him fit neons to the underside of his car the other day. If I had a photo I would post it. He is trying to convince me to run down the same route but so far I have politely declined. I reckon the only major worthwhile mod is dumping a 1.7 where the 1.5 currently is.

Personally I think a car should be more go than looks. Your van would want to have an aweful lot of go! :D

To think he now drives a S4 Spider! :)

The best I can do is a Raleigh Chopper (yellow) 1976 and a spacehopper (red) 1975. The Chopper may have had subtle modification in the form of those cards from cereal boxes stuck in the spokes. I later added a battery powered 'horn' that played 3 different emergency service tones. I believe that I did indeed look the DB's riding through the village with my weedy "nee nar nee nar" going full chat.

Later in life I had an idea to modify the spacehopper with helium gas which I believe would have made it bounce higher.

Gary Boy, me? (Nova SR, Uno Turbo, Golf GTi x3, plus spells behind the wheel of XR3s and RS Turbos). Draw your own conclusions. But I like to think I've grown up now...

Oh $hit! That reminds me...I had a white XR3i once for about 6 months. Other than a Nova that makes me one of the biggest GaryBoys ever. What was I thinking. Pictures? Don't be so stupid...we all know what a white XR3i looks like!

At least it wasn't modified I suppose... :D
